Midwives have been the attendants of birth throughout history. Tradition, necessity or choice brought women to Midwifery. The practice of Midwifery has been preserved through time and continues in every part of the world. Today, Midwives are the specialists in homebirth and experts on normal and natural birth.
A Certified Professional Midwives (CPM) is an independent professional, who is educated, trained, and skilled in caring for the normal processes surrounding reproduction and in recognizing and managing complications that arise and may require physician care. A CPM has met the standards of the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) for certification and maintains her certification through continual education, peer review, and practice.
